1994 Ford Fiesta Equipe 1.3 from UK and Ireland
Gods gift to us young drivers
Engine locked and had to be replaced after the oil pipe burst on the Duel Carridgeway. Rear clusters needed replacing, New Brake Discs and Pads, Power Steering Rack gave in and had to be replaced. Lower skirting on front and rear became chipped and weathered. Gear stick has wooden spoon in porridge effect.
Lovely car. As a young driver I'm forced to give credit where credit is due and say that the Ford Fiesta is the best car I have ever driven. Based on its low insurance costs and its ability to conserve fuel. The Fiesta is a car that I bought in the hope of modding it up a bit, but so far I have pumped money into keeping it alive. However after you get over the enitial tweaks you must do. It's a brilliant car. The Equipe I own has power steering as standard which I found a benefit as I learnt to drive with power steering. It makes the Fiesta a bit more of a joy to drive and nippier.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
